Bill Muehlenberg's commentary on issues of the day…
The gender benders are having a field day, causing all sorts of harm and confusion. In an age in which most people have succumbed to mental and moral mushiness, it seems anything goes when it comes to human sexuality. Instead of acknowledging how nature intended things to be, we are seeking to deconstruct nature, and make things up as we go along.
Today we are told by the radical social engineers that there are many sexes – it is just a social construct, not a biological imperative. Thus you can be heterosexual today, transsexual tomorrow, bisexual the following day, homosexual the next, and so on. It seems the sky’s the limit for sexuality.
All sorts of confusion and grief is being caused as we deny reality and live in the la-las land of sexual deconstructionism. Remember the story of the poor 8-year-old California boy? The headline was shocking enough: “The little boy who started a sex change aged eight because he (and his lesbian parents) knew he always wanted to be a girl.”
Imagine doing this to a mere child who is still developing physically, emotionally, psychologically, and mentally. But we are seeing this more and more often. Children are being made the pawns of adult social engineering. Where will it all end?
The simple truth is this however: we are created either male or female. Either you are born with a female XX sex chromosome pair (one of the 23 pairs of human chromosomes) or with a male XY chromosome pair. That is basic human biology.
Yes, there are some very rare cases in which people are born with things like ambiguous genitalia. Known as the intersex condition, this can come in the form of such cases as Turner Syndrome, Klinefelter’s Syndrome, etc. Not only is this extremely rare, but it has nothing to do with the sexual revolution and the homosexual agenda.
The great majority of cases today of sex-swapping and the like are based on lifestyle choices, not inherent biological conditions, such as intersex. But in a culture which has decided that sexuality is fully plastic and malleable, and not fixed and innate, we are finding all sorts of bizarre cases of sexual suicide.
Consider a recent case of an Australian man who has decided he will be sex-less, or “gender neutral”. The headline is enough to make you want to give up on the West: “‘Sexless’ activist wins right to be recognised as a ‘non-sex’.” Yep, we now have the nonsense of “non-sex”.
The story begins as follows: “A man in Australia who claims to be neither a man nor a woman has been officially recognised by Australian authorities as ‘sexless’ on his birth certificate. Norrie May-Welby, a British expat, was born a man but had a sex change operation in 1990 when he was 28. However, after becoming unhappy as a woman he opted to become a ‘neuter’.
“In 2010 officials in New South Wales (NSW) altered the Briton’s birth certificate to declare a new sex category, ‘not specified’, but the decision was later reversed. But now three years on the man has won an appeals verdict in the NSW Supreme Court to be recognized as ‘sexless’ on his birth certificate in a landmark case. NSW Supreme Court ruled that people do not have to legally specify if they are male or female but could select a third sex category stating ‘non specific’ on official documents.
“In 2011 new passport rules were introduced in Australia which allowed residents to identify their gender as male, female or indeterminate. In the same year the UK Home Office said it was considering scrapping any mention of a person’s sex on passports for the sake of ‘transsexual equality’. However, critics raised concern that such a move would place an undue burden on the UK Border Agency and there was confusion about how exactly the scheme would work.”
No I am not making this up folks. I wish I were. And our government is quite happy to go along with all this foolishness. So it is not just the sexual revolutionaries who are intent on destroying biology and human sexuality, but utterly moonbat governments as well.
If all this just impacted adults, it would be bad enough. But far too many children are being messed with as well – that is the real worry here. Woe to those who would treat our children so horrifically, all in the name of moonbeam social engineering ideology.
Let me add a few extra paragraphs here from an expert on the subject. He argues that from a scientific viewpoint, there is no such thing as transgender. Here is how an article on this opens: “A prominent Toronto psychiatrist has severely criticized the assumptions underlying what has been dubbed by critics as the Canadian federal government’s ‘bathroom bill,’ that is, Bill C-279, a private member’s bill that would afford special protection to so-called ‘transgender’ men and women.
“Dr. Joseph Berger has issued a statement saying that from a medical and scientific perspective there is no such thing as a ‘transgendered’ person, and that terms such as ‘gender expression’ and ‘gender identity’ used in the bill are at the very least ambiguous, and are more an emotional appeal than a statement of scientific fact.
“Berger, who is a consulting psychiatrist in Toronto and whose list of credentials establishes him as an expert in the field of mental illness, stated that people who identify themselves as ‘transgendered’ are mentally ill or simply unhappy, and pointed out that hormone therapy and surgery are not appropriate treatments for psychosis or unhappiness.
“‘From a scientific perspective, let me clarify what “transgendered” actually means,’ Dr. Berger said, adding, ‘I am speaking now about the scientific perspective – and not any political lobbying position that may be proposed by any group, medical or non-medical. “Transgendered” are people who claim that they really are or wish to be people of the sex opposite to which they were born, or to which their chromosomal configuration attests. Sometimes, some of these people have claimed that they are “a woman trapped in a man’s body” or alternatively “a man trapped in a woman’s body”. The medical treatment of delusions, psychosis or emotional happiness is not surgery’.”
